The fine art of writing and essay is a pleasure once it is understood. As a published writer with books on Amazon, Barns and Noble and many other fine retailers, I can help to improve your skills. My degree work in the Professional Writing program was received at the University of Southern California. I am fluent in several languages, which adds to the cultural perception of diverse backgrounds. Early studies during my high school years were spent in earning university credits at the University of Rochester in the Russian Literature department and my work for different publication such as the Gannet papers produced a following of readership. Articles and my music criticism are archived on line.
If in person, we usually meet at Panera or Starbucks during the day. Working online is more flexible. Whatever your challenge or goal, I am happy to help you achieve it in a relaxed, and positive lesson.

I look forward to working with you!

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Since our 11 year old daughter, Ella has had lessons with Dr. D., she no longer gets anxious or stressed about Common Core Math. Ella says Dr. D. is kind and sweet, and she doesn't ever feel bad about not knowing the answers to questions. Dr. D. personalizes her lessons to our school district's Common Core curriculum and sends us emails on how Ella is doing after every lesson. Ella looks forward to her lessons with Dr. D. and she has really gained confidence in approaching math. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. D. and we give her our highest recommendation:)

I purchased the lessons for my 9 yr old son. He has never played the piano or any instrument before these lessons. Joshua is very talented in his field but I feel he needs to work on his patience. He was always professional but his tone and expressions made my son nervous. I had to stop the classes and loose my payments. I wanted to push my son to finish the classes, however, I didn’t want him to loose his love of music. I hope this comment helps to improve the next person’s experience.
Rosalin
I was surprised that my lesson could be cancelled without any communication. This is our first experience with piano lessons and was excited to try it for the first time. ;(
Melissa
My son has had 2 lessons so far. Joshua has worked with him at the level he is at and helped him when he gets stuck on certain chords and notes. He assigned homework for him to practice during the week and helped him figure out the parts he was stuck on.

Jenny is a wonderful, patient, gentle and positive human being and instructor. She was the perfect match for my young daughter just learning piano for the first time. My daughter connected with her quickly and looked up to her. She made learning piano fun and engaging. After 9 months of weekly lessons, my daughter chose to take a break to focus on her schooling but we hope to reconnect with Jenny in the future! Overall, our experience was extremely positive.
AC C.
Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended
Matthew
Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

Peter Furlong is a teacher who instills solid technique in a way that sticks, and in a way that makes you want to sing even more. His emphasis on supple, supported breath is the foundation upon which all other great work can be built. His knowledge of diction in classical/opera languages is extremely helpful in getting audition pieces polished. He is an encouraging, enthusiastic teacher and I would recommend him to anyone!

Mr. Furlong is an excellent coach and teacher. His focus on technique addressed confidence, range, breath, core strength, and resonance. He adjusted to my needs and was very professional. I highly recommend Mr. Furlong.

"I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!"

"Shon Morgan is absolutely the greatest most talented musician and music teacher I have ever had the privilege of learning from and playing music with. I am a drummer/guitarist/vocalist. We did some touring gigs together in our earlier years and he was already amazing back then. He sat down and taught me the circle of fifths off the top of his head in one conversation. I learned so much just playing along side him. So not only is he an amazing player, but he is also very well suited and experienced as a teacher. He is the most knowledgeable musically but patient and kind personally. He plays and teaches multiple instruments and vocals really well but he stands out tremendously on bass guitar! You can not go wrong having Shon Morgan as your teacher, period!"
